Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

The facility we're shown looks like a high-tech, Kabbalah-themed water treatment plant -- the takeaway being that LCL is an environmental pollutant that is removed by way of successive treatments.

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

Alright, that makes me feel a little better. :wink: About the red oceans, I pondered this deeply quite recently... The amount of fluid saturating the oceans is so utterly ridiculous that I finally realized that trying to explain it, as I had been doing, by one of the Adams swelling up and exploding ...

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

If you ask me, the LCL that explodes from the angels in NTE is more akin to blood than it is LCL https://wiki.evageeks.org/Image_collapse So serious question: is this just for fun, or are you serious enough about these ideas to be able to think of anything that would convince you away from them?

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Wait, does that eye have three extra pupils?!! :cringe: Evas have four nostrils, too! I always assumed that the Evas(/Seeds) had mortal antecedents because it doesn't make much sense for something that is 100% incomprehensible god to be a giant bag of meat. Far more logical for them to have been ma...

That only addresses why Shinji wouldn't eliminate things like the Evas and Angels, not the rest of my point.

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

So who's got their Covenant BD? Got mine from Target so I could have the Creatures booklet. Finally being able to SEE the movie (theater I went to fucked up the projection bad) was nice. I'm quite aware of the film's shortcomings, but there's still a lot about it for me to like. The featurette Adven...

Re: The Significance of "Shadow Bone"

Completely unbeknownst to me when I made my post above, there may actually be a basis for this "female as phallus" stuff in psychoanalysis: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallic_woman This exceeds my own current understanding of Freudian thought, but nice to know the lead is there. EDIT:...

Re: Word of God or Death of the Author?

I also go for the holistic approach. Why stick to one method when you can use several different information-collecting and -weighing techniques, each with their own pros and cons? I used to be a real canon nut, but nowadays I find the concept of canonical tiers mostly useful for designating the para...

Re: The Significance of "Shadow Bone"

Either it's implying what you propose, that Yui's death confers Gendo some sort of "phallic" power. Or it's suggesting the exact opposite. Gendo + reminder of dead Yui = the mere shadow of a phallus. In other words, without her, he is no man at all. One could take this further and posit th...

For a change of pace, I'm going to switch out to the gayest dandiest, craziest, Fassbenderest android to ever play God. David 8 artwork by Junseo. (If I'd wanted to be really gay, I would have tormented everyone's eyes with this instead.)

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

what if the Rebuild films actually take place within a reality constructed by Shinji during Instrumentality? Why would Shinji create the kind of reality shown in the movies? Tons of stuff has absolutely nothing to do with Shinji's happiness levels. You don't need to make Angels explode into LCL, ad...

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

Stillborn, you are one of the most confusing human beings I have ever encountered. You reject a positive interpretation of Evangelion and paint Anno as some kind of cynical asshole who just enjoys watching his self-insert suffer (which would make him a masochist rather than a sadist -- something you...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

You see, I thought that Shinji and Asuka/Rei (didn't know which) would have to team up together in order to stop 3I. And that 3I would be caused by some sort of, cosmic intercourse. But, in doing so, they would be so in sync with each other, that they would accidentally engage in their own cosmic i...

Re: Pen Pen's Sexuality

Hmm... "Spheniscan" doesn't sound quite right to me. Would probably be "spheniscid" (if referring to the Spheniscidae) or "sphenisciform" (if referring to Sphenisciformes). Though always delighted to see ornithology getting any attention. :tongue: (I'm still trying to t...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

There's the hint of some bad blood between them -- look at the way Asuka squints at Misato when she says, "Isn't that right, Captain Katsuragi?" Not enough to get in the way of what needs to be done in the present, but something emotionally unresolved regardless.

Shinko and Kaworu-chan have rather boyish figures. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
